EOS Demonstrates Advanced C-UAS Capabilities at US Army Project Convergence Capstone 4

Huntsville, Alabama-based contractor EOS Defense Systems USA (EOS) participated in the US Army’s Project Convergence Capstone 4 (PC-C4) during the period 15 to 20 March at the Army’s National Training Center in Fort Irwin, California.

EOS demonstrated the capabilities of an R600 Remote Weapon Station equipped with a Northrop Grumman M230LF cannon, coaxial machine gun, and four Javelin missiles on an Army Small Multipurpose Equipment Transport (S-MET) robotic infantry support vehicle. EOS successfully shot down pairs of Class 1 UAVs at ranges of more than 300m and engaged multiple ground targets with 30mm cannon from this robotic platform. These capabilities paired with four of the premier anti-armor missiles in the world represents a significant increase in firepower available to light forces on a platform that is currently being fielded. The R600 provides both light- and medium-caliber firepower and the added lethality of multiple anti-tank or anti-air missiles, offering a major differentiating capability and addressing a critical need of US and allied forces.

Several experienced industry partners contributed to this success. The C-UAS exercise was conducted against Boresight Aerial Targets’ low-cost UAVs which provided challenging and realistic target sets. The Javelin missile capability is being supported by the Javelin Joint Venture team.

The event was a critical venue for Army senior leaders to assess new technologies needed to ensure the Army’s success in future conflicts as well as inform acquisition and force structure decisions. As human-machine integration continues to be a key strategic priority, the demonstration was an important opportunity to evaluate unmanned and remote solutions which provide essential protections to the warfighter. EOS’ unique and ultra-precise RWS paired with a proven, multi-functional robotic vehicle is a viable and cost-effective solution that can address strategic Army priorities in the C-UAS domain and increased lethality for light forces.
